What Industries Can Make Use of Structural Die Casting?

Structural die casting can be used across any industry where a structural component must be produced from metal, usually aluminium or an aluminium alloy. These structural components can be used in the construction industry and in white goods, but the most famous use for structural die casting by far is in the structural components cast for vehicles, whether they be cars, vans, motorcycles, aeroplanes, helicopters or even fighter jets!

In these applications, there is no room for error – that’s why, at Lupton & Place, we use a Buhler CARAT 130 structural die casting machine, outfitted with real-time, closed loop control to provide the same industry-leading result, every time. A Wollin die sprayer, Westomat dosing furnace, ABB casting extraction robot and a Tecnopres KPZ 40 trimming press complete structural die casting cell at Lupton & Place, equipping us with the ability to cast structural components to a cutting-edge, industry-leading standard and provide unbeatable customer service and results.

While this represents Lupton & Place’s current structural die casting setup, as a company, we are constantly working to improve our facilities, our knowledge and our capabilities. Never satisfied to rest on our laurels, Lupton & Place will be quick to adapt to new developments in the die casting industry!

Structural Diecasting for the Automotive Industry

Our primary structural die casting work is in the automotive industry, producing structural components for use in cars. These components are made with a high-grade aluminium alloy, AlMg5Si2Mn, which results in a lightweight, high quality, high-strength component which does not need to be heat-treated.

Advances like these have been crucial to the development of the modern automotive industry, enabling the construction of lighter, stronger vehicles and boosting fuel efficiency.

Structural Diecasting for the Aerospace Industry

Structural die casting is favoured in the aerospace industry for the same reason that it is used in the automotive industry – the creation of very lightweight, strong, durable, high-performance components in an extremely precise, consistent manner. Lupton & Place can produce components to extremely exacting standards, like those required in aerospace engineering, so get in touch with us today if you would like to discuss these requirements with our experts!

Structural Diecasting for the Construction Industry

Construction is another industry in which structural die casting can be particularly useful – the ability to create very precise components which will be lightweight, strong, and with tightly-controlled spacial dimensions is an excellent asset to many ambitious architectural projects and quality-minded construction companies!
